POTW #580 - Covering period 16th December - 29nd December 2019
Posted By: aaacb, 12-22-2019, 06:33 AM

Welcome to the 580th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 16th December - 29nd December 2019. Let's see what you have been shooting these past two weeks. POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range. In other words, you can post your shots from this week AND last week.

To post your great photos, just hit reply and attach away. Feel free to start immediately.

Please:

• consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.

• identify your camera and lens if that information is easily available to you.

And please invite other Pentaxians to join us.

Some rules:
1) No theme, just post your favorite pix
2) Six or fewer images per person per thread to prevent thread bloat
3) Any Pentax, Ricoh or Samsung camera, film or digital

The current host will invite a new host via Private Message (PM), but if you are interested and willing to host POTW, please send me a PM, before I contact others.

If possible, the new thread will be linked to the previous one. If the thread doesn't start, please contact the host, via PM. Here are the records of recent POTW thread hosts: 390-406 smf, 407-408 ramseybuckeye, 409-411 stubyles, 412-423 SD_Bob, 424-427 dave kitson, 428-451 smf, 452-454 StephenHampshire, 455 Aslyfox, 456 StephenHampshire, 457-466 noelcmn, 467 Aslyfox, 469-470 aaacb, 471-472 Madmathmind, 473 Eva, 474 rjbrett, 475 Aslyfox, 476 - 485 noelcmn, 486 - 488 rjbrett, 489 clackers, 490 - 498 rjbrett, 499 StephenHampshire, 500 smf, 501 StephenHampshire, 502-505 Eva, 506-525 Vaskebjorn, 526-538 noelcmn, 539-547 aaacb, 548-563 Eva, 564-571 noelcmn, 572-579 nosliwmit

Some concert shots (k1ii + fa 43, fa 100). It's nice not to have to clean noise in post and still keep color images. I cloned some distractions in the background in the first and second image, fire alarms and vents.






and some with the city at night (gr iii). I didn't have a tripod, but I was able to rest my hands against the wire fence and image stabilization took care of the rest (~1s exposures)

Thanks for hosting aaacb. That last shot is a cracker! A contribution from me, hopefully I'll be able to post a 2nd batch
From today




Yesterday


Friday's session with the Christmas tree at the Orphanage


Thursday, a visit to Kloofendal Nature Reserve, with the kids that are still at the Orphanage, not having any family that they can go to. All the others left for the holidays weeks ago.






Here's one of them, enjoying a visit to another park on Wednesday

1-3. Industrial landscapes of the Delaware River facing North Bound
4. "Robbie the Robot" Trash Can
5. Commuter Essentials

As an aside, great pic from everyone so far....Noel, your name is a perfect compliment to your fine photos as always. Thank you aaacb for hosting. The musician shots are always fun especially live performances, Noel: this month's National Geographic has macro shots of flies and bugs--it reminded me of some of your handiwork--in fact, I think your are sharper. If you get a moment take a look at the 01.2020 edition. Cheers and Happy Holidays to All !

Visit to the Zoo yesterday

An endangered "Baw Baw" frog taken through glass with a rubber lens hood to avoid reflections

I just love the butterfly enclosure

Here's one that landed on a child's hand so I asked to take this pic

The Tamron 90mm macro lens I used for these pics takes awesome shots

And an edited photo because of the butterfly laying eggs was hidden in darkness so I had to edit for better viewing

I have many more but chose these 6 to show for this week
